If it was pulled from a running truck, it should just plug right in and fire up. If not, you will need to have it reprogrammed.

Are you having the low voltage DTC's on several cylinders? Is your truck turning over as fast as it ever has? If your batteries are weak, replace them both. Bad batteries are also bad for FICM's. You may need 2 new batteries and a new FICM. Possibly try the batteries first, and maybe get them tested individually.
